First Sentence
I don't suppose that there is anyone here who doesn't feel that we have an architecture of alienation, eminently visible here in Sheffield: the alienation between the designer, the maker, the product and the consumer. Read the first page

A fascinating book documenting Ward's numerous talks, and attempts to talk to architects, about the people they build for. As many of the dates show these issues had been being discussed by Ward since the 1970s, but we still see precious little of his 'anarchist based' concepts of architecture in practice. His reliance on people to know best is not something the architectural professions seems able to comprehend. A great book, neat, succinct and well edited.

Full of wisdom and commonsense won through a lot of hands-on experience.
Every architectural student should read it, and be examined on it.
